I got this dress as a hand-me-down recently and I tried it on with several sweaters and jackets but never found one that looked quite right. As much as I love strapless dresses they don't often love me as they tend to be too low in the front or are hard to define your waist in. So, I decided to make it into a skirt.
First, I tried it on at my waist to see how much of a waist band I wanted. Then I took it off and trimmed it accordingly, leaving an extra 1/2 inch for a seam allowance.
Then I stitched it down and was done. Easy peasy!
Now I have a comfy skirt that can be worn in any season with boots or sandals. I included it in my 21 Days with 5 Outfits Challenge. Follow the link to make an outfit for my for my up-comming trip!
